The KRA 405B Radar Altimeter system consists of the KRA 405B transceiver, dual KNI 416 indicators, and two antennae. The system provides each pilot with dependable, accurate AGL (altitude above ground level) information during the approach phase of a flight. The system alerts the pilot visually when a predetermined altitude (decision height) is reached. Aural alerts can be installed with compatible audio controllers.
